Both Houston’s Baseball and Softball final home series have title implications in The American. Houston Softball enters its Senior Weekend series against Memphis with both teams tied for third in the league with a conference record of 10-8. Should Houston sweep the series and Wichita State win two-of-three in its weekend series at USF, the Cougars and the Shockers would share The American’s regular-season title.
Meanwhile, Houston Baseball enters the weekend atop The American’s standings with a conference record of 13-5, giving the Cougars a two-game cushion over USF, who receives its conference bye this weekend. Houston has just one conference series remaining after UCF, traveling to UConn the following weekend to face the Huskies, who are third in the league with a conference record of 9-6 and sit at No. 13 in the latest NCAA RPI rankings.
On the track, the Houston Men’s program reentered the nation’s top, as it sits at No. 5 in the national rankings heading into its final tune-up meet prior to next weekend’s American Championships in Cincinnati.
